Bill Maher returned to HBO last night with his hilarious political talk show "Real Time with Bill Maher". His guests were actor Tim Robbins (who had a pretty good take on "experts"), NPR's Michel Martin who did get a tad ghetto on the host, and Stephen Hayes, a dude who wrote a pro-Dick Cheney book.

Maher had an interesting interview with a NY Times reporter who is in Iraq, and he talked with GOP hopeful Mike Huckabee who answered the "why don't you believe in evolution" question as well as you probably could.

But the end of the show usually brings out the most laughs, Maher's "New Rules" which we share with you this afternoon.
